Sam Heughan’s Instastories continue to keep fans up to date. His most recent hinted at a secret project, which could be the reason he’s canceled Outlander New Jersey con.

Sam Heughan is a busy man. He’s just had one movie come out and will be filming a second (if not already started filming) on his second. And now it looks like he’s got a third one. During his Instastories (which he encourages all his fans to follow), he’s shared a new secret project, hinting that this could be something different to Bloodshot.

After all, why would he need to hint at Bloodshot right now? It’s definitely not a secret that he’s in it and Vin Diesel has already shared that filming has started on that comic book adaptation. So, what could this project be?

Whatever it is, he had to be in a car for several hours for it. He was also sharing that the location is a secret, which again hints that it’s not Bloodshot. We know that movie is filming in South Africa. If it is Bloodshot, it’s extremely disappointing now!

Meanwhile, this project is likely the reason he’s canceled the Outlander New Jersey con. Some fans in groups have discussed how he’s on vacation in Scotland right now, but it seems that is definitely not the case. It must be filming related for it to lead to canceling the second of two Creation Ent cons.

There’s still no word on whether these projects will cause problems for Wizard World Chicago. He, Caitriona Balfe, Diana Gabaldon, and many other Outlander stars are all going to the convention next weekend.
